Alexis put a dark thin cigarette into his mouth and with a slight jerk of his hand it ignited, letting the smoke swirl around his mouth. He could almost taste it, almost remember. Smoking was more of a pointless habit these days instead of simply a bad habit. How he envied the mortals of that. Alexis loved his un death but had to admit that smoking and the disease risk it entailed was really a mortal man's game. However he continued to smoke because he found that it relaxed him even by the act alone, also when dealing with mortals it seemed to draw attention from his pale face.
Closing the door of his apartment behind him Alexis set out into the night ,he did not need to feed as he had done so a few hours earlier. He just felt the need of the warmth of shadow's embrace. Moving down an alley way side stepping the social detritus that littered the urine soaked walls calling out for charity like abandoned kittens he came to a high wall. With a quick look over his shoulder to ensure the bums had not followed him he levitated into the air and landed the other side of it. A shortcut that shaved 20 minutes off his journey. Rushing, he felt, was also a trait best enjoyed by mortals.
Arriving at his destination, a bar he frequented for no other purpose than to check in with his contacts or have a meeting, he walked in and sat down in a booth in the corner. Lighting another cigarette he leaned his head into the half shadow cast by a malfunctioning light bulb. He never had to look for a distraction. It normally found him.
